The Perfect Blend of Ingredients

- Strawberries: These provide natural sweetness to the smoothie.
- Kiwis: Kiwi and strawberry make a well-loved fruit combination. Fun fact: you can eat the kiwi skin for some added fiber!
- Greek yogurt: Opt for plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt. However, flavored yogurts like vanilla or fruit also work well to add extra flavor.
- Milk: Choose your preferred type of milk – regular, almond, oat, or coconut. If you want a lighter smoothie, water or coconut water are great alternatives.
- Optional: Add a touch of honey or maple syrup if you desire extra sweetness.

Tips and Variations for the Perfect Smoothie
- If you find the smoothie too tart, sweeten it up with a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup. Alternatively, choose a sweetened yogurt.
- Replace Greek yogurt with a scoop of protein powder, adjusting the liquid amount accordingly.
- Add half a banana for extra fiber, creaminess, and sweetness. Feel free to experiment with other fruits you enjoy!
- Amp up the nutrition by adding a handful of kale or baby spinach to increase the fiber and nutrient content of the smoothie.
- Boost the health benefits with 1-2 tablespoons of chia seeds, ground flax seeds, or hemp seeds, which provide healthy fats.
- Craving healthy fats? Incorporate a tablespoon of peanut butter or your favorite nut butter.
- If you prefer a thinner texture, add more liquid to achieve a smoothie that’s easy to pour.
